Lakeview Christian School was born out of a concern of parents, Dr. Robert Jackson and Dr. Earl Jackson, and Lakeview Wesleyan Church founding pastor, C. Eugene Cockrell. They wanted a school that would meet a growing community need for a private school uniquely committed to quality academic opportunity with strong moral and Christian teaching. The school officially opened in September of 1977 in the Christian education facilities of Lakeview Church. Two classes, kindergarten and a combined first and second grade, included 28 students and two teachers. By September of 1978, student enrollment had tripled to a total of 86 with the addition of grades three and four and three additional teachers.
Upper school grades were added year by year through the 1980's, and programs in music, physical education, art, and sports became part of the curriculum. With this growth, the school needed additional facilities. In 1985, construction of the new high school building began on land given to Lakeview Life Center. In January of 1986, the high school moved into the new facilities, which included classrooms, a science lab, administrative offices, and a full-sized gymnasium.
It is the desire of the School Board and the Administrative team to see the school grow and prosper as it offers the highest quality Christian education to the children and young people of Grant County.
